HILLS Family History

This very old and widely distributed surname is of Anglo-Saxon origin, and has two distinct possible sources, the first and most likely being as a topographical name from residence by or on a hill, derived from the Olde English pre 7th Century "hyll", hill. Topographical surnames were among the earliest created, since both natural and man- made features in the landscape provided easily recognisable distinguishing names in the small communities of the Middle Ages; in this case especially, because every small district had its rising ground called "the hill", and the surname is therefore extremely popular in every area of the country.
